Topless

I'm looking for voices of experience - I'm a relative jeep noob, my '12 JK being my first, but likely not my last.

Where I live (Toronto, Canada) it rains from time to time, a couple of times a week usually. I have a hard top, but not the dual-top option. I would like to at least take the Freedom Top off from time to time, though I probably won't be taking off the rear section, as I don't have a garage and therefore no real place to put it.

Since this is my first Jeep, I'm find the idea of letting water in sort of ... well, let's just say it would be a first.

Is there really nothing in the interior - all the electronics in the dash etc - that would suffer if they got wet from time to time?

As I don't have a garage, I'm talking potentially about leaving the car out overnight in my backyard with the tops off.

Electronics don't like water. A sprinkle probably won't hurt anything, but I wouldn't leave it open in a downpour.

The Freedom panels are a cinch to take off and put on. I'd just put them on at night. Who wants to wake up to a wet seat anyway?

Seats and carpet will dry.
If you get too much water in, just pull the drain plugs in the floor.

Watch the clockspring.... it's an expensive item to have to replace due to water damage.
